This is the right application, comment #2 and comment #3 are wrong.

text/javascript is the MIME type for executable JS. JSONP is really just
executable JS that does something (call a function or set a variable) with
inlined JSON data.

application/json is the MIME type for data encoded as JSON. By itself, this is
valid JS, but executing it doesn't do much. This is used by XHR (i.e. normal
same-domain AJAX) to grab JSON data that is then parsed (not executed!).
